Images: Electro, ‘Man of Steel,’ ‘Star Trek’

We’re at the point I’m ready to quit watching clips and previews for movies like “Iron Man 3” and “Star Trek Into Darkness” because they seem so spoiler-intensive. Even if they’re really not.

But new trailers for the “Star Trek” film and “Man of Steel” have come out in advance of their summer openings. And news about “Amazing Spider-Man 2” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” has broken.

So, herewith, some images.

At the top is a shot from the “Star Trek Into Darkness” trailer. That’s the Enterprise on the left. But what’s the ship on the right? Some futuristic version of the Enterprise? Is it what the crew ends up piloting – not unlike the Klingon ship they sported in “Star Trek IV” after the Enterprise was destroyed?

So is Benedict Cumberbatch a time traveler?

On to comic book movies.

The “Man of Steel” trailer released this week didn’t feel as much like a solemn affair as the previous ones did. A little more action, a little more human (and Kryptonian) emotion. I’m beginning to look forward to this.


I’m not sure what to think about Jamie Fox here as Electro from “Amazing Spider-Man 2.” He’s very … blue.

But it seems unlikely they would put him in this, his traditional comic-book outfit.


And then there’s news that our beloved Michael Rooker of “The Walking Dead” will appear in Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” in 2014. But not as the voice of Rocket Raccoon.

No. Rooker will be playing Yondu, another member of the Guardians.

I wonder if he’ll be as blue as Electro?

I think director James Gunn’s film is getting trippier all the time.
